      Wonderful challah. People want to come for Shabbat lunch just for this. And I am NOT a good baker. Thanks, thanks, thanks.

      I've never made any sort of bread before this, and it came out great! Super easy, and it looks great!

      This challah turned out wonderful! I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour, which gave it a different flavor than traditional challah. I also added raisins and chocolate chips and sprinkled cinnamon on top instead of the sesame seeds. My family loved it, and we finished it soon after it came out of the oven.
